So I was watching the new Nintendo Direct today, I had totally forgotten it was today. So I saw it by chance and boy I’m glad I did! There where quite a few tidbits that interested me in Wii U. Sadly for me since I had a lot of problems with “Försäkringskassan” I didn’t get the money I was supposed to get, so I had to return the Wii U I had. Such a damn shame, but I’ll get a new one in the future. I had been away from work some time, I was sick and FK gives you some compensation for that, well they messed up my papers and things went like they did..
Well on too the important part, Nintendo announced that they would release The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD later this year. I’m very interested in that since I’ve just played minimal of the original. So for me that is great news! And that they are working on the new Zelda game for Wii U, looking forward to that too. We will probably see something or get teased at E3 this year. But that’s not the thing that go my attention oh, no. It was Monolith Software’s (Xenosaga, Xenoblade) new game. For now just called “X”.
I love just about everything I see. When I saw the mech part I immediately thought of Xenogears and Xenosaga. So I’m very hopefully for this and it reminded me that I have to play Xenoblade Chronicles soon! So far we no nothing about the game, not its name or anything just the X-logo in the end of the video, hence why I call it “X” right now. Duh!
But it will be interesting to see if this is a new game of if it could be Xenoblade 2, either way I am so getting this game.

Hehe, didn’t think I would be making a post on christmas. I know I should be in bed (and I am playing Wii U in bed…). What I mean is that I really should be trying to get some sleep. So I can wake early and get ready before my friends pick me up.
But New Super Mario Bros U is very fun, plus as I mentioned in the post before this I am enjoying Miiverse a whole lot. NSMBU feels like a mix of Mario 3 and Mario World. So yeah, pretty awesome in other words. And I just encountered a snow world in the game, it was very pretty and nice. I enjoyed it a whole lot. Hoping for more awesome or cool worlds to come. Well, merry christmas to all of you out there celebrate this day.
I’m so glad I haven’t heard “Wham’s, Last Christmas” at all this year. So damn refreshing actually. So tomorrow is Christmas, for those who enjoy this day. I don’t and haven’t done for a couple of years, the magic with Christmas disappeared pretty early for me. So now mostly I feel like shit on Christmas, I really don’t enjoy it at all. Perhaps this year will be a bit better since I have been invited to a couple of friends, so there won’t be much Christmas stuff. Rather just eat good food and enjoy good company. No stress and shit with present and all that goddamn shit.
Otherwise I’ll just continue to soak in my off time from work. Just being able to stay up a bit later to play games, like I could in the past is awesome. I didn’t know how much I’ve missed that. Just game until you are so tired that you could fall asleep in an instant. Of course, you should never overdue it. But it feels good that you can play how long you want without feeling the stress, that you have to go to bed early because you have to go up early for something.
And while I do not celibrate Christmas or even give gifts, I myself received this. I’ve been having pretty fun with New Super Marios Bros. U so far. Even if I haven’t played much of it. Hehe, still Tales of Graces F replay getting in the way. But I’m going to start playing the Wii U seriously pretty soon. Miiverse was pretty fun, much more than I thought it would be. I enjoy seeing what people has drawn, some people are really talented. Disgustingly talented, I get very jealous at what some people can draw…
It seems like this whole E3 has been very disappointing to me. While I do enjoy Nintendo’s own people like Reggie, Mr.Miyamoto and such I missed the great games. I could really careless about their NintendoLand, it might be fun. But it wasn’t very exciting to watch it. And the fact they just spent about 2-3 minutes on Nintendo 3DS made me sad, sure they’ll have a whole hour for that tomorrow but I would have loved to see something right now. The montages of Wii Fit U wasn’t interesting at all, but it was pretty nice to see what can be done with the Wii U. I’m definitely looking forward to more of those things.
New Super Mario Bros U looked very nice and is probably a lot of fun to play. Batman Arkham City Armored Edition, wasn’t as appealing as I’ve already played Arkham City. The new stuff with the controller will probably fun, but it didn’t do anything for me.
New Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS also looked very nice, but there was to much focus on gold of what they showed. Not really sure how to react to that really. Paper Mario: Sticker Star looked really fun, so i want to see more of that. Luigi’s Mansion is still one of my favorite GameCube games and Luigi’s Mansion 2, now know as Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon for 3Ds is something I’m really interested in.
So while I thought Nintendo’s conference was a bit boring too, I think they had the best E3. Since Reggie is very charismatic and he even made the “My body is ready” joke. Gotta give him that! But I’ll wait a bit and see what Nintendo will offer in their Nintendo 3DS conference .
